Particles Of The Infinite
Release Date: 3/18/2022
Format: CD
List Price: (A18) $18.98 

Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Guitarist/Composer Alex Anthony Faide has a decades-long international reputation for being the secret weapon in rock recordings, arrangements, and stage productions in Europe and Latin America. Based in Seattle, WA, Faide releases his long-awaited solo record, Particles of the Infinite, a display of guitar pyrotechnics in nine parts. Inspired by and developed from concepts found in songs such as King Crimson's "Fracture" and "Lark's Tongues in Aspic," Faide takes the work beyond the stratosphere into the mirror dimension to find something completely his own. In the words of his mentor Robert Fripp, "AAF plays my guitar parts better than I do."

Invitation To Openness: Live At Big Twig
Release Date: 3/18/2022
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

"...a work of true artistic mastery, and generational significance. In many ways, it personifies the direction of jazz music into the 21st century." - ALL ABOUT JAZZ. Disbanding his hard-touring trio in 2000 after a productive decade, pianist Hal Galper returned to 'the shed' to work on concepts that would lead to an indomitable period of innovation that so remarkably occurred a half century into his career. Enabled by his association with bassist Tony Marino and Billy Mintz, Galper pursued a rubato approach to time and movement, documented on "Agents of Change" in 2006, and then through his ground-breaking recordings from the last 15 years with bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer John Bishop. This live recording from 2008 with the Agents of Change trio, reflects a time & place in Galper's career where he was becoming supremely certain with his musical voice and comfortable with his gradual shift to being a member of the rich cultural community in Sullivan County, NY, after decades on the road and in New York City. Now 14 years since this recording, Galper is again performing weekly with Marino & Mintz up near his home in the Catskills.

Title:
Something Worse Than Loneliness
Release Date: 3/4/2022
Format: CD
List Price: (B16) $16.98 

“Something Worse Than Loneliness” is Bob Lind’s third album of new material in the past decade, following 2012’s “Finding You Again” and 2016’s “Magellan Was Wrong”. Both of those records served to reintroduce many of us to Lind. We remembered him from his smash 1966 folk-rock hit ‘Elusive Butterfly’ and oft-covered classics such as ‘Cheryl’s Goin’ Home’, but what we discovered was that his new work was just as potent – even more so, perhaps – as those earlier releases.

Title:
Contradictio
Release Date: 3/18/2022
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

"Contradictio feeds from tradition – evoking Galicia, Paris, New York - although it does not stop to search for limits but tries to reach for infinity." - Javier Fraiz, Faro de Vigo. From the Galicia region of Spain, saxophonist Xose Miguélez celebrated the traditional melodies of his family, viewed through a modern jazz lens, for the 2019 release "Ontology." On "Contradictio," Miguélez features the virtuosic French pianist Jean-Michel Pilc, and the music they've been developing together over the last several years with the Portugal-based rhythm team of bassist Carlos Barretto and drummer Marcos Cavaleiro. Together, they deliver prominently contemporary timbres within an organic classic jazz setting. Through a mixture of standards, originals by Miguélez, and a Pilc original dedicated to Galicia, the music unfolds with a spontaneity and life that inspires feelings of a live music experience.

It's Not That Easy / Hummin' A Sad Song
Release Date: 2/4/2022
Format: 7
List Price: (B13) $13.98 

This slice of Louisiana deep Southern soul has taken on a life of its own since Dave Godin included it on his first "Deep Soul Treasures" CD, and the single has shot up to well over three figures in value. In 2021 the song is the subject of a cover version by the-name-to-drop Lady Blackbird and we felt it was about time that it was reissued in its original format.

Heat Wave
Release Date: 3/18/2022
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

"...an excellent group of players jamming, meshing together fluidly, and the energy is consistently high...Shner's solos can twinkle and extend like Coltrane or honk and squawk like Big Jay McNeely..." - ALL MUSIC GUIDE. Its name meaning "lion" in Shona, a language of Zimbabwe, MHONDORO has produced a powerful first album, full of joy and brimming with the force of life. Melding traditional Zimbabwean music, American jazz, and an unmistakable dose of the Pacific Northwest, Heat Wave celebrates the culmination of its diverse roots. Born during the pandemic as Israeli saxophonist Idit Shner, Zimbabwean vocalist & percussionist John Mambira, and the Oregon-bred rhythm section of pianist Torrey Newhart, bassist Garrett Baxter and drummer Ken Mastrogiovanni, formed a "parent pod" to allow their children to attend virtual school together while the parents jammed in the living room. Realizing that put together, the music created was both global and hyper-local-truly American, in the best sense of the word-it provided a thrilling artistic escape from the times and exciting possibilities for the future.

Violin Memory
Release Date: 3/18/2022
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

"(John Stowell) can make an electric guitar sound like a singing voice" - Nat Hentoff. The compositions of master guitarist John Stowell have taken on a life of their own over the last several years. As fellow artists have become increasingly aware of their intriguing melodic & harmonic movements through recordings with the group Scenes, or from his solo guitar renditions, novel methods for interpreting his works have become an inspired exercise. The 2020 duo release, "Rain Painting" with bassist/vocalist Dan Dean, set the stage with Textura describing it as "...innovative, original, and musically rewarding." For Violin Memory, trombonist Dave Glenn recalled his many duo performances with Stowell as being like chamber music, inspiring him to arrange nine Stowell originals for string quartet-the themes stated by the quartet as springboards for the duo's renditions. Besides those, Glenn offers 3 of his compositions and a mid-program medley of Stowell tunes arranged for the quartet. "The skillful ingenuity of Dave Glenn's jazz writing makes an easy transition into his elegant string quartet writing." composer John David Earnest.

'Over And Over' is simply the greatest ever 7-inch disco edit, a nine-minute anthem which retains (or maybe even enhances) its appeal in the smaller format. The tripped-out soul of 'I Need Somebody To Love Tonight' also has a great shorter version. Neither have been reissued since their original release.
